So, i'm pretty sure that i'm suppose to tell you to vote for me on FASHION JINX for the feature of the week, but I think you all can tell that the obvious deserving winner is the lady right above me, her looks are soo stunning! So thank you for those that took the time to take a look at it! If you're up for voting, by all means do vote for me!

Anyways, this photo above was taken not too long ago-I love the blouse i'm wearing, I can't wait till summer so I can wear it over my bathing suits :)


I haven't had the time all week to announce this, but Hanako66 of Through The Looking Glass... gave me a lovely award (which coincidently I have recieved before, but I am STILL very much thankful to her!):

Thank you again, you're such a sweetheart!

So, I have this crazy obsession with wearing my skirts as shirts, it's kinda an issue...turning into a habit I it a bad one? I don't know, you tell me!

And the lovely July Girl of 14 tagged me for '6 Random Things About Myself '. Considering I am the most random person you'll EVER meet, it was a tough decision to decide on some interesting picks. Here are my six:
1. I am an artist of all sorts. I love photography and i'm passionate about art-I love drawing, charcoal is my life!
2. I have family all over the world, from Austrailia all the way to France
3. I am an only child of my parents, but I have a total of 4 siblings who all differ a little from ethincity as me
4. It's a little cliche, but music is my life...there is not a day that goes by that I don't listen to some tunes
5. I use to be a dancer, and I miss it very dearly...especially ballet
6. My dream is to become a buyer...although I don't know the most practical way of getting there, for right now...i'm just staying in school
I'm going to tag:
Jessica of january
Jules of Candy Hearts
Have a great day everyone!

Living in my Abyss

So not too long ago I was tagged by the beautiful Esther of rhapsody in boots for a unique post, "Show off your blog workspace."
Here's a little disclaimer: I'm in the process of redecorating my room. It has been a process that has long gone over it's due date, so excuse the ugly dated furniture! Hopefully it'll be done by spring.

- Well obviously the first photograph is the doorway into my room. I've been finding old polaroids from all sorts of years and collaborated it into a collage in the shape of a cross. One of the many things I do when i'm bored-I make things :)
- The second photograph shows off this lovely chandelier I bought online. I was super excited to get it, but to my dismay it turned out being a lot smaller than I expected. Nevertheless, i'm still enjoying it very much. The process of installing the light fixture was a nightmare!
- Ok, so this desk is the worst piece of furniture in my room. I can't wait to get rid of it. As you can see, I have my usual flashcards and smart water (i'm always studying) and my planner, which I would DIE without. These curtains went very well with my room before I began remodeling, I need new ones.
- This doesn't necessarily fall under my blog workspace other that it makes it easily visible for me to see what i'm typing on those late nights. I love this light fixture. You might notice it, it is from Urban Outfitters. I love their furniture!
I'm tagging Elizabeth Marie , Nina (femme rationale), and drollgirl- I can't wait to see your spaces!
Thanks for reading

Brutal is the one word that can describe this week! I've been SUPER busy with midterms and other commitments, I haven't been able to blog about anything. Anyway, there is still NO UPDATE yet for South's killing me. Hopefully i'll find out within the next week. Here is a photo of a pair of jeans I've been wearing recently...they're perfect. Cute and nicely fitted, and completely free, courtesy of my mother!
Another note, i'm desperately missing Lookbook! I haven't had a posting in who knows when! I guess I have been way too busy to capture my looks lately, that has GOT to change...

P.S. Sorry to those who I have yet to comment back, i'm getting on it ASAP!

montrez notre amour

So, it's the big day for a lot of couples all over. Some recieving an 'I love you' for the first time, getting engaged, recieving bundles of flowers and chocolate and maybe a little extra :) This year's Valentine's Day is special to me, because I am spending it with someone special. As most people know, i've never been one to really celebrate this holiday so my only vice is to let those who I love to know that they are loved.

Among other thoughts on my mind, I just purchased tickets to see Kings Of Leon this morning with a few friends, a great way to start off a Valentine's morning I believe. It'll be wonderful and glorious...and I just can't wait. Because these tickets were purchased, the possibility of me going to Coachella is really getting slimmer. Gosh, I don't know what's going to happen...I guess we'll see.

A quick little update, the lovely Elizabeth Marie graced me with this award:

Thank you so much sweetie, I'm so glad you've become a regular as I have become to yours!

Well, i'm off to get ready for dinner and i'm leaving you all with this to make your day filled with love and happiness, I love you bloggers:

Happy Valentine's Day!

The Amazing Six

Yamila, Yamila! The beautiful Yamila Gonzalez of 'Yamila Gonzalez...justi... por su gracia.' thoughtfully tagged me for, "The 6 Things That Makes You Happy" and here is a little insight about me:

*note that these are in no circumstance in order of importance/higher value
*because there is just so many things that make me happy, the six i'm listing are things that are currently circulating in my little head of mine
*i'm making a desperate attempt to share something that isn't predictable of me(haha)

#1: Funny that I start off with something as unusual as this, but I recently discovered this book again in a dissholved little corner of my room and began re-reading it again. Anthony Burgess is so talented, yes 'A Clockwork Orange' is really dark and horrifying but it holds deep insights in this complex world of ours. It makes me happy to think that nothing is perfect in this world as much as everyone is trying to make it out to be. Of course it did catch Andy Warhol's eye, come on...

#2: It's amusing that Greece makes me so unbelievably happy and I have yet to travel there. Nevertheless, it's has and always remain as my number one destination for me. I love the culture, the isles and the beautiful ocean, the food, the people, the structures and history. It's just all too stunning to me.

#3: Ryan Adams...need I say more?

#4: I once told myself that I would marry someone who would make me a falling garden. I wasn't lying. This beautiful piece was created by the artists GERDA STEINER & JÖRG LENZLINGER who amazingly developed,

this in the San Staë church on the Canale Grande50th Biennial of Venice, 2003

and this in Abbey Library of St.Gall, 2005

#5: Very childish, and playful but a big happiness of mine is just enjoying the many beauties of nature. Picking flowers, running in grass and absorbing the glorious sunlight just puts a smile on my face any day.

#6: I am so very happy to announce my last 'happy' thing, Carla Venticinque [Home * Carla Venticinque] is a truely talented artist. Her collages are so brilliant and breath-taking, everyone needs to enjoy her art!

birds of a feather

So, i'm in the process of re-decorating and I found this wall decal that I'm pretty sure I'm going to use in my bathroom. I'm super excited. Hopefully these things aren't too hard to put on...

ciel d'achats d'épargne

Yesterday, I had a splendid day of shopping. The economy these days is just horrible, so it was a relief to discover some great finds at the local thrift store. Here is what I found:

A great shirt/tunic, I can not wait to wear this baby with some cute leggings and heels

This purse caught me off-guard pretty quickly when I scoured the store. I normally carry large bags, but this would be a nice change for me. I love the color and the texture.


I'm not too sure why this photo upload sideways, but I think you all can get the jist. This cardigan type cover was something I contemplated on buying. The shape of it kinda drew me away for awhile, but I've grown to love it!

This beautiful blouse is one of my favorite things I purchased. The silk and the lace are so esqusite. It drapes over me really great, so im super excited to match this with other things in my wardrobe.


These boots wins for the best find of the day for me. The burgandy leather was just what I was looking for. I've been getting into more red shades in my looks, and I was so excited to find these. For awhile I've been look for studded shoes that aren't too obvious and cheesy, and I think these are just perfect!


I love the white and gold. I've always though that these colors went well together. I'm glad I found this, I was in dire need of a belt.


These shorts we're a no brainer for me. I love the buttons of the front. I thought it was a nice touch to a pair of high-waisted denim shorts.



...and I wore the boots today woo hoo! Unfortunately to my dismay, my alarm went off late and I had an early morning class. Coincidently we had our first test today as well. Well, my new boots didn't feel too sympatheic...long story short, I twisted my ankle :(

Sunday, February 8, 2009

Today was absolutely gloomy. The rain in Southern California got the best of me, I've been at home lounging and taking naps. In addition, my friend was over to look at my new dress that I purchased at a thrift store (see above). Safe to say, we really weren't up to go venture outside. It was a lazy day and I honestly needed one.


Aside from that, I've been nervously counting the hours till my interview at RockHarbor. I can't imagine those three weeks I might be spending in South Africa. It's a beautiful place with a beautiful culture, but also a place in need. I'm really hoping that I can finally feel the security of helping someone in need across the world because it truely has been on my heart forever. I've done some work here in the states (and I'm planning on continuing to), but the places abroad sometimes are just never thought of. It'll only bring me comfort to aid to those who are unfortunate. These people need to see the love that we have for them, and I feel more than ready to make that happen.


P.S. I thought this was a beautiful cover of 'Happy Ending'

Hello Brazil!

So, i've been non-stop interested in a few Brazilian designers, and this one is worth blogging about: Amapô

What do you think?

Saturday, February 7, 2009

Ok, so it's only been about a few hours since my last blog...but I found this new project of mine that is blog worthy. This beautiful DIY studded blazer caught my eye automatically...and i'm determined to get this beauty for myself. Of couse, i'll add some of my personality in addition as well :)


Upon many courses im taking this year, I've strongly become keen on the study of sociology. Quite recently, i've been faced with social situations that have given me a great deal of intrigue. What really causes us to act the way we do? Well, regardless, my naiive self seems to claim to know all facts, which coincidently makes for great discussions in class. Besides that, i've been locked up in my room studying for a crucial midterm. I'll admit...i've escaped a few times.

On another note, i'm interviewing for another missions trip to South Africa...wish me good luck!

where, where have you been?

Good golly, it's been awhile since i've posted an entry. In fact, I have tried a total of two times since my last entry, but something about this site deleted it in the process of posting...I have to admit that it made me sad. I've learned my lesson and now i'm copying and pasting it a document just in case! And yes, I do believe that I just sounded like a complete loser :) Anyhow, these past weeks have been a real journey. I honestly cannot say that I have enjoyed all of it either. Nevertheless, I did get to spend quality time with my best friend, which was very much needed. On the contrary, because of the sudden end of winter break, my functionality along with my studying demands didn't contrast well at all. I believe that i'm still in 'vacation mode'...and it needs to end ASAP. Some recent updates: i've decided to join into 2 extracurricular activites this semester, one is AS at Fullerton College-it's basically the Student Government of the school and i've placed myself in 'publicity' where it thought fitted well with my personality. Another that I have joined is, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK)-an honor's society group which focuses on many things, one of which is community service. I'm estatically excited to get back into community service. I believe that it is one of my true passions in life.

With that, i've also applied to a ministry trip Uganda through RockHarbor. I'm so excited for this opportunity, but i'm trying my best not to give my hopes up because I know that this is really competitive. Regardless, I do feel called to do something there, so if I do not get accepted, i'm pretty certain that I will travel there.

Aside from that (I have plenty more updates, some of which will just be a bore), I have refreshed my brain and decided that I have really been lacking on my Lookbook and blog. As a result, i'll be having more posts soon.

On a lighter note, I purchased three amaazing pairs of shoes recently:
